There has to be some kind of special bond that real-life couple and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult share over each of the two donning full-body blue makeup for the mutant movie, we just aren’t sure if we should feel bad for them or not. After all, the couple that blues together…snooze together? Whatever, we’ll work on it.
MTV News caught up with Hoult to chat about the latest offering in the “X-Men” franchise, “Days of Future Past.” The first thing on our minds, of course, is who we should feel more sympathy for when it comes to makeup.
“They’re very different, makeup-wise,” Hoult said diplomatically. While Hoult’s makeup requires him to get covered in hair as Beast, Lawrence has to strip down for hers.
“People definitely wouldn’t want to see me in that makeup,” Hoult joked of Lawrence’s revealing Mystique look.

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is in theaters now.
